The Art of the Brick
June 11 - September 10, 2016
The Art of the Brick is a global-touring, one-of-a-kind LEGO art exhibition featuring large-scale sculptures created entirely out of LEGO bricks by contemporary artist Nathan Sawaya. Award-winning artist Sawaya has catapulted the iconic LEGO brick into an art medium all its own- elevating this construction toy to new heights by employing it to build awe-inspring and thought-provoking sculptures.
Concurrently on display at the Art Museum for the run of the exhibition will be Sawaya's unique multimedia collaboration with award-winning Australian photographer Dean West, entitled In Pieces. In Pieces features a collection of visually stunning, hyper-realistic images that are exhibited with corresponding and complimentary three-dimensional LEGO sculptures.
The Art of the Brick is being presented for the first time in South Carolina and will be featured in all 11 galleries of the Art Museum.
